Mind should be clear from negative thoughts.
There are many disease that doctor are not able to find the reason for and cause of it. When this happens, in astrology we relate with the past bad karma of a person. But the question is can we fix that and the answer is YES. The people who approach life in negative way and negative attitude towards life can have deep rooted health problem in their mind. For any disease to occur it first comes in the mind then in the body. Anyone who suffers from a chronic illness has a deep emotional problem. Unless you address that emotional problem, you will not find a permanent solution, no matter what medicine you take. It is important that you delve deep into your own consciousness and find the answer.
Most people think that astrology has no relationship to their health. But our body is directly related with the cosmos and the planet. Astrology can be a helpful in looking at various sphere of life related with health.
How Do Chakras Relate to the Energies of cosmos?What is outside that is inside .we all have the energy which exist outside, the planet the energies which see revolving outside they also exist within us in the form of chakra. Chakras are our inner planetary solar system, and these chakras are related with each planet. When chakra or planetary energies flow is not smooth. Just like a dam blocking a rivers flow, our inner energies can become blocked, our body not able to function properly when energies channel is is block we may have disease related with that chakra. in astrology we can check which is planet is weak with the help of this we can find which chakra is weak, and we able to find what kind of disease the person have and step he can take to improve his health. Once we do that, not only will we solve our own problems, but also the problems of the planet.
